Debating (Issue 11 2018)
Written on the 16 August 2018
This year we have had two Year 6/7 teams and a Year 8 team entered in the Debating SA competition. We have enjoyed seeing the girls progress in their skills across the season. The Year 6 girls have brought a lovely sense of enthusiasm, whilst learning from the Year 7's. The Year 8 students have been honing the skills they have developed over the last few years and we congratulate them on winning all round so far. All teams are working well together to plan their arguments and have been improving with each debate. They have listened carefully to the feedback from the adjudicators and incorporated this. Right from the first debate, all speakers have made a great impression with their efforts at rebuttal. Thank you to all of the parents for coming out and being a supportive audience. Congratulations also to Anneliese Pittman (MC White) and Caitlin Bailey (MC Blue) who won Best Speaker in their debates in Round 4.
